Of course, whether or not the events will actually go ahead as planned remains to be seen due to current restrictions around festivals and other mass gatherings during the coronavirus pandemic.
This news follows the announcement that multi-leg New Year’s festival, Falls Festival, would not be going ahead across December and January as intended, after reps for the event said it was not possible “given the current status of things and border restrictions in place.”
